I apologize in advance if this is common knowledge, but I have a few questions.

I just got an adapter for my Leica R glass to NEX mount from Henrys (toronto, canada)

I have cleaned the lenses, and am ready to shoot.

I mounted the lenses on the adapter and I mounted the adapter on the camera.

Turned on the camera, and low and behold, Aperture keeps showing a blinking ???, kind of annoying.

How do I make it go away.

Also,I tried to review a picture, and it said no lens attached error, and would not let me review it. that said this only happened one time.

Am I doing something wrong? I thought I could specify the aperture of the lens on the lens and on the camera.

Make sure you have the option I told you enabled and you will be able to shoot with your lens. The aperture will keep blinking you will have to learn to ignore it, set your aperture as you want to and shoot away

Release w/o lens enabled is the default setting for the A7/A7R.
